Nigeria Lady Who Survived Car Accident That Claimed Lives Of Her Family(photo)

The story of Chigoziem Emereuwa, She survived a car accident that claimed the lives of her entire family and now she’s set to graduate with a PhD in Pure Mathematics at the very young age of 27.
Speaking recently on why she chose to study mathematics, she said ‘I am not one of those who realised their
passion for numbers at a young age. I always wanted to be a chemistry lecturer just like my mum so I planned to study Chemistry in University. I was only 15 when I finished high school and began my university education so when it
became time to choose a discipline, my family narrowed it down to Banking and Finance, Mathematics and Geography. I did well in Mathematics but I thought that was normal for every student and Geography was because the environment
always fascinated me and I had sworn to travel so I could see more. I chose Mathematics eventually because it was one of the few subjects that didn’t bore me and I thought it would give me a wider career option in the future. I credit my family for helping me understand my strengths and weaknesses.
Her life however changed on the night she lost her entire nuclear family. On the 17th of August 2001, whilst
traveling with her parents, siblings and one of her aunts for her Mum’s sister’s wedding, their vehicle got hit by a
truck. No member of her family made it to the hospital as they died in the accident
